Eminem is facing fierce criticism after releasing a new album featuring a lyric about the devastating Manchester Arena bombing, which claimed the lives of 22 people, many children.

The rapper released a new album today, entitled 'Music To Be Murdered By' - and one of the tracks has caused outrage for its reference to the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017.

In the track, 'Unaccommodating', Eminem raps: "But I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game/Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting."

The song is thought to be addressing his feud with Machine Gun Kelly and also features bomb sound effects.

Ariana Grande fans are very upset about the lyric (

Fans on Twitter have voiced their anger and upset over the lyric, with many calling it 'disgusting', 'inappropriate' and a complete 'lack of respect'.

One called it 'sickening', writing: "I'm honestly so horrified and disgusted that @Eminem thought that line was okay to put in a song. Making fun of and lightening such a heavy situation that has traumatised many including Ariana is sickening."

While another said: "Eminem made a joke about the Manchester attack. 22 people were killed, many injured and he is making fun of that. It's not the first time he does this. I like some of his songs where is talking about his family and childhood, but THIS IS NOT IT. It's disgusting and disrespectful."

Others agreed, with another disgusted Twitter user writing: "Sorry but Eminem doesn't have the right to [be] joking about what happened in Manchester, that's inappropriate!!!! This is just disgusting. Eww."

Hundreds of fans have said the lyrics are 'messed up' with others questioning 'what his team were thinking'.

"Eminem really said in his new song 'Unaccommodating' the lyrics 'bombs away like I'm at an Ariana Grande concert' and proceeded after with gun shots/explosions mocking Manchester... I am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? He's trash."

One accused the 47-year-old of including the controversial lyric to 'try and gain clout'.

"This is so messed up!" They tweeted.

"Many people (mostly children) were injured at this concert and some even lost their lives, and he thinks it's ok to put this lyric in a song? @Eminem maybe try and have a little respect, and don't use a terrorist attack to gain clout."

The album - which features 20 tracks and is Eminem's first in almost two years - was announced under the Twitter caption: "It's your funeral".

Ariana Grande is yet to comment on the backlash.
